The Making Of ...
I spent about 5 months making the bust of Jesus as shown above. This was done while I was teaching Sculpture and 3D Design at college so that students could see how a sculpture is made. Another 2 weeks were spent creating the molds that would capture the surface forms. With the molds, I am able to recreate the original clay sculpture shown above and make a very nice plaster cast or a bronze cast. Photo below shows how big the molds are, with me standing to the left.
For a little more insight on the setup of a project like this, download the 3 page excerpt from my publication Drawing & Sculpting the figure.
